For this decal, Bryan fills the coin door hole
The Modfather did an AWESOME job on the hand and chair! The veins and age spots look absolutely incredible! Very happy I did this mod!
That hand looks awesome. It is 100000x better. I do think it's too shiny though. I'd like to see one with a satin finish.
Quoted from heni1977:
Why is the trim shorter on the sides? I have noticed this on a lot of machines.
Also, what is he sanding with when he sands for the decal? I would guess 1500.
The trim is shorter on the sides because that's how you buy it. It's made the same as the originals.
Sanding before decals is done with 320 grit, followed by red Scotchbrite pad then white.
I contacted the Modfather and he was nice enough to get rid of the shine to the hand. It was about to ship out....
Looks a lot better with no shine! The Modfather ROCKS!
Sanding takes place. It's impossible to remove the paint from each of the tiny little holes. Painting will take care of that
The following is a lesson in tumbling from Bryan: The first media is what it should look like. Even if it gets dirty, it should turn a darker brown. If it turns greyish, it's been contaminated with somwthing. It won't clean but it won't polish like it should. The parts won't shine like they should.
of all the threads that I favorite, this is the only one I really get excited when I see updates.
- unless the posts are all about beer -
Ok back to more updates....All targets are super old. They all get replaced. This single target is supposed to be blue
These are the pivot nuts the playfield rotates on. Needless to say they get replaced.
That Thing hand looks amazing.
That Fulton Blonde tastes amazing.
(The Shiner Bock isn't too shabby either.)
Even run for ten minutes the ultrasonic doesn't get 100% everything. Bryan scrubs everything after It comes out of the tumbler
After rinsing everything gets blown dry with compressed air To avoid any water stains.
